NEW BTS Stills and Interview with Matt Roberts, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe from LA Time   1 comment

Here are NEW BTS Still and Interview with Matt Roberts, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe from LA Times

From LA Times:

A short drive through the leafy forest of Cumbernauld, a town just outside Glasgow, leads to a dusty lot where an 18th century version of Wilmington, N.C., has been built for the fourth season of “Outlander.” Wooden shop facades line streets that dead-end into the dirt and promise wares residents would have needed in Colonial times.

More after the jump!

But if the narrative setting of the Starz series, based on Diana Gabaldon’s novels, is shifting to America, the show remains firmly rooted in Scotland. So rooted that Scotland’s only film studio, Wardpark Studios, was built to accommodate the show. So instead of relocating its production from Cumbernauld, “Outlander” has recreated this Southern port town as it was a decade before the Revolutionary War.

“Every year we seem to reinvent the show, and that’s always a challenge,” says producer Matthew B. Roberts, sitting in his office in Wardpark Studios, which has expanded since 2013 to four soundstages, multiple workshops and the new Wilmington backlot. “The typical television show will be centered around a place, and then you flow story in and out of that place. But we don’t usually have that. In the first few seasons, when you needed a location or you needed a castle, we just went outside. In the new season, they land in America. So that was the challenge for season four: America in Scotland. We can’t go out and find that castle. We have to build everything.”

  1. Great interviews with Matt Roberts, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe. I like Sam’s and Caitriona’s perceptions on the locations, sets and conditions Jamie and Claire must face. Sam is right there is a strong Scottish/Irish population Eastern coast of the States, the ancestors of those people had settled there. The Maritime Provinces of Canada are the same way. Our province of Nova Scotia is an example of that because Nova Scotia means New Scotland.
